September — November 2021, with the funding of Hong Kong family office Tsangs Group, in VR technology support of HTC VIVE, Indonesia Creative Cities Network (ICCN) and Good City Foundation (GCF) co-organised a Virtual Reality Technology-driven accelerator-style smart city project incubation program “BAMO” for 81 civil servants, government urban planners, NGO leaders and private sector owners from 31 cities in Indonesia.
Bootcamp Accelerators for Mayor Offices (the “BAMO“) is an accelerator-style smart city government capacity development program in Indonesia to conduct over 10 hours of urban planning and development training (planning, design and policy innovation) with consultants from the World Bank IFC (on EDGE), the World Economic Forum (IoT and Urban Transformation), Indonesia Creative Cities Network and Singapore-based digital twin company, Urbanetic. The BAMO program is strategically positioned with the ICCN as part of Indonesia’s national development goal on the 2nd wave of digitalisation in the country.
